2019 Massone Gavi Masera - Perfect Warm Weather White

2019 Massone Gavi Masera - Perfect Warm Weather White

The 2019 Massone Gavi Masera is a masterpiece of an Italian wine and it’s also a perfect white to sip on warm and sunny spring and summer days. As with all wines from the Gavi region, this one is 100% Cortese, and it’s a wine that possesses both weight and crispness.

Stefano Massone has dedicated his life to one grape and one region, and the I personally think his Gavi Masera is one of the great white wine values on the planet. Do I have your attention yet? Keep reading!

Gavi is one of the great white wines of Italy’s Piemonte region. Unfortunately, many that are imported to the US fall flat. They’re often lean, green and acidic, but Stefano Massone’s version is ideal. With vineyards in the warmer, southeastern part of Gavi, his Cortese grapes gain great ripeness while preserving vivacious acidity.

And the Massone Estate is organic, so not only is this one delicious, it’s also produced with respect for the earth and the imbiber. The Masera Vineyard was planted back in 1978 in very poor, lime and calcium rich soils. And it is these well-drained, rocky, mineral-rich soils that give us some of the finest white wines in the world.

What’s it taste like? You will be surprised with the depth of flavor here. There’s pear and apple along with white flowers and delicate minerality on the nose and the palate. But what I love most is how the wine is concentrated and full-flavored, yet light and fresh at the same time. Bravo to Stefano for being able to achieve this balance.

What’s it good with? Fish, shrimp, herb roasted chicken, but don’t forget the green veggies. Have fun with this one folks – it really just wants a couple glasses and some good company. Make it happen!
